According to SlashGear Marvell’s SheevaPlug is a device that hides an entire Linux PC in a wall-wart power supply. Priced at $99, inside it there is an ARM-based 1.2GHz Sheeva processor, 512MB of DDR2 memory, 512MB of flash storage, gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0.

Eventually, prices are expected to drop to around $49  and it’s designed to take a USB hard-drive and turn it into network attached storage. Not only will this be from a home network but users can access the drive through a web-based portal. Marvell claims it uses less than one tenth of the power of a typical PC being used as a home server.

NerdLogger has a great post on this technology as well that goes into greater detail on its potential.
